HR8 – Bipartisan Bill for Background Checks| Call To Action, Committee Hearing Wednesday February 6, 2019

Washington (Gallant Gold Media Hill Report) – The very first hearing on common sense gun laws in eight years will take place in the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday February 6, 2019. This is a monumental event, just eight days before the one year anniversary of the massacre in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018 when 17 innocent students were slaughtered in the middle of the day, their future positive impact in their communities now a huge, gaping void.

HR8 Explained: On January 8, 2019 Representative Mike Thompson of California’s 5th District introduced H.R. 8: Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019. This simple, common sense gun bill is summed up in one sentence: To require a background check for every firearm sale.

The bill has nine bipartisan co-sponsors, one of whom is Representative Jerry Nadler from New York’s 10th district. Representative Nadler is also the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

Once a bill is introduced, the next step is to be considered in committee, in this case the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday February 6, 2019. The issues are debated and the committee votes whether to approve or reject the bill. If approved it will be reported to the House for a full vote in the upcoming months. If passed in the House, it will it move to the Senate.

CALL to ACTION: Contact your Congressional Representative TODAY to let them know: Yes to HR8.

  1. We should all be reminded, “It’s not the gun that kills, but the person behind it”. If we continue to inflict these cumbersome laws on the law biding citizens of these Untied States of America, the only folks with the “illegal” weapons will be the criminals.

    Try curbing these ridiculous violence promoting video games and we may begin to see results. Don’t give me this crap about “freedom of expression”, goodness, I graduated High school in 1978. We didn’t have “Clubs” promoting sexual preferences.

    Seriously, we as parents, need to step back and observe our children. Watch what they have to indicate, hear what they have to say, and for crying out loud, listen. As parents our role is to guide and teach. WE need to set the example, not the government.

    Hillary Clinton stated, actually stole from an African saying, “It take a village to raise a child”. Holy Crap did she ever take that out of context. Their saying was one that if the family was struggling, be it from war, failure of crops, drought or famine, the others in the village pitched in to see fit that the family would endure. Not the Government!

    Liberals need to see that we, as a Nation, can and WILL thrive. We don’t need their inhibiting laws to keep us safe. Our Fore Fathers did that already.

    They survived the Revolutionary War. The Spanish American War. Hell we survived our own Civil War. All of the conflicts and others that have come, and are currently being fought will make us stronger.

    We had an ad only a few short years ago, ARMY STRONG, ONE STRONG. I am still STRONG. Leave my family and our protection the hell alone…

    Virginia’s Constitution lists the reasons for dissolving its ties with the King in the formation of its own independent state government. Including the following:

    Keeping among us, in times of peace, standing armies and ships of war.
    Effecting to render the military independent of, and superior to, the civil power.
    * These same reasons would later be outlined within the Declaration of Independence.

    A Declaration of Rights. Section 13. That a well-regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defence of a free State; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided, as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.[88]..

    The “civil power”, Hello, That’s us folks!!

    1. Thanks for sharing your opinion, although I have to admit I don’t agree. I do recognize however that your perception of HR8 aligns with the NRA and Many GOP. Are you active duty or retired military?

      The following are my thoughts regarding your arguments:

      •The first 3 words of 2nd Amendment are “well-regulated militia” … our founders believed that guns in the wrong hand are dangerous in a free society and should be well-regulated; background checks for every gun sale would not infringe in your rights in any way, it only impacts criminals and the unstable. It’s the equivalent of carding at a liquor store or bar. No one above the age of 21 minds, only those below the required age.

      •Yes, I agree, there is nothing better for children than proper parenting, however, America is not Utopia. There’s plenty of evil in the world. Not all parents are good parents, we can’t let children fall through the cracks. There has to be safe guards to protect.

      •HR8 is a bipartisan bill with 281 co-sponsors. Many GOP are for this. In fact, there are very few against. What is there to be against? It’s pure common sense, which is why it moved forward.

      Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. HR8 doesn’t hurt you in anyway Sir, but it does help many. Why are you against something that doesn’t hurt law abiding citizens, but rather helps protect the innocent who will potentially be killed by non-law abiding citizens?

      1. Back ground checks are done for every gun sale in every state when purchased from a federal firearms dealer. All states now require backgrounds at gun shows to buy firearms too. Every state that I have checked requires private gun sales to be handled by a licensed firearms dealer-who does the background checks through State Police and FBI. Why add yet another law to the already 18000, plus laws on the books now. The goal of the democrat party is a full gun ban. Thus, they can usher in their extreme Marxist Ideologies of we the government and not we the people. The founding fathers drafted the Second Amendment as a protection against a governemnt that may commit tyranny on its citizens. That was the main purpose of the Second Amendment!.

      2. Glenn, where do you get your information? There’s not a single gun related issue that’s the same in every state, which is why we’re trying to get Federal Laws passed so that all states will have same protocols. Background checks are super important. The two big loopholes are gun shows and private sales. It sounds like you also believe it’s very important to have background checks for both of these. The Democratic party does NOT want a full gun ban. Many Democrats own guns. We believe in common sense legislation just like the 2nd Amendment outlines… “a well-regulated” (first three words of the 2nd Amendment emphasize the importance of regulation). Thanks so much for posting and sharing your thoughts.
